In our daily life and work, we are often confronted with situations that require a conversation we don’t want to have – an employee who is not performing well, or handling a confrontation between two colleagues. Not wanting to deal with it, we avoid the issue, hoping it will go away. Instead, the issue becomes worse until a major issue erupts. This session provides tools for handling these challenging conversations early on, by first recognizing why the issue is troubling and then focusing on what outcomes are needed to resolve the issue. By handling the issue while it is small, you will avoid the major future situation. There will be group activities and practice handling of challenging conversations. By attending this session, you will be ready the next time you need to handle your own challenging conversation.
